A business in Honolulu, Hawaii has called out President Joe Biden’s insensitive comments comparing a fire in his kitchen that he claims to have happened 15 years ago to the deadly Maui wildfires. The company’s sign mocking Biden’s story has since gone viral on social media.
Hawaiian Rent-All removed any promotional language from its sign out front for a very sarcastic apology to the President.
“Sorry you almost lost your ’67 Corvette in a fire, Mr. President. Maui strong,” the sign read.
Rent-All posted a photo of the sign to its Facebook page with the caption “It’s not always about you Mr. President.”
Biden’s first comment about the fires in Maui was “no comment.” After cutting his vacation short to finally visit the devastated area 13 days after the fires, Biden stood on a stage in front of Hawaiians directly impacted by the fires and compared them to a fire in his kitchen.
“I don’t want to compare difficulties but we have a little sense, Jill and I, of what it’s like to lose a home,” Bien said. “Years ago now, 15 years ago, I was in Washington doing Meet the Press. It was a sunny Sunday.”
“Lightning struck at home, on a little lake that’s outside of our home—not a lake, a big pond,—and hit a wire that came up underneath our home into the heating ducts and air conditioning ducts,” he added.
“To make a long story short, I almost lost my wife, my ’67 Corvette, and my cat.”
The chances that Biden completely made up his kitchen fire story is most definitely not 0%.
